"I do not recall reading that this nation was ruled for decades by a tyrannical dictator that filled mass graves, kept rape rooms for his diabolical sons pleasure, fed his subjects into a shredder, imprisoned young children, cut off body parts for entertainment.........."

You're right in that regard. King George of England (a dictator) merely taxed the American Colonists without providing them a voice in government. We went into full-scale armed rebellion over just that. Had he been half as nasty as Saddam, he'd probably have ended up with his head on a pike, to boot.

France aided us in our rebellion, but it was the American people, led by the original Patriots and Minutemen, who started and prosecuted the war, upon threat of death, from the British Army.

Okay, I do remember that part. As I was searching for something else, I came across links I had saved and not looked at for some time. I would like to share them with you, if you are interested in learning exactly what the Iraqis have lived through.

This is about a teen-age girl that waved to coalition forces at the beginning of the war.
